Whoa .... wait a minute.... Minnesota Golden Gophers??? I had to look that up to see where and who they were. Minneapolis with campuses throughout Minnesota ...yep! I have no ties to Kansas or Minnesota so I flipped a coin on this one - Minnesota won. Go Golden Gophers! Go University of Minnesota!
Back to the Fiesta Bowl party - Tempe residents only pay $5 for each ticket but those not living in Tempe pay $20 each ticket. It is a blast! Word of warning though - parking is a pain. The party last until 1 am and there is no bus system at that hour. Dress warm - party safe - go gophers!http://www.fiestabowl.org/index.php/insight

It took 30 minutes to get from McClintock/Apache to downtown Phoenix at the Washington/Central stop. The ride was smooth except for being so extremely crowded. We got off at that stop to have lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe.
I collect the Hard Rock pins, bears, shirts, and the Barbies. I bought the Phoenix Hard Rock Herrington bear dressed as a coyote. (like I needed that :)
Then..... we tried to go home. Everyone that had rode the light rail into Phoenix was trying to go home too. The line for the light rail was so long we decided to try the bus...... oh my! We walked over to catch the bus - the line was as long as the light rail line. To make a long story short.................
A little over two hours later, we made it home. I think riding the light rail would be fun and convenient BUT not during any events.

Anyway, I called the Walnut Ridge post office this morning to see if they had seen my package - they said no. At 7:30 am this morning I got a call from the post office here in Tempe. My package made it to Arkansas and back and was here at the Tempe post office waiting for me. Amazing!
I called Walnut Ridge, Arkansas post office and told them Thank You but the package is already back here. I told them (laughing) to be on the look out again if I accidentally addressed it wrong a second time.
This is a Thank You for all the hard working postal workers!

So that was all the ruckus at 3 a.m.! I'm thinking Bandit might not be the right name for this new puppy. This morning I'm thinking "Dog from Hell."

Jodi told me to be careful - do not leave your glasses where the dog can reach them. So I haven't so far but.... Sunday, I was in the kitchen - I heard my husband's cell phone ringing. Then I heard -why are you calling me? I went in the living room and found Bandit chewing on my Bluetooth earpiece for my cell phone. I don't know how that could happen but Bandit chewing on the earpiece had caused the phone to call my husband. ???
As I do several times a day, I go out and de-dog-poop the backyard. Bandit has "eaten" lots and lots of tiny rocks. Scooping up Dog-pooped-rocks was a first for me. I guess it won't be the last. I can't believe what that dog puts in her mouth. The end results are just plain nasty!

***Update: They had Free shipping available so I placed 5 orders. Very courteous and helpful staff member named Hannah took my orders. I was very pleased with the selections they had (especially since some of my family are not coffee drinkers). Although it was very busy they had plenty of staff to take care of us last minute shoppers.
I give Fairytale Brownie in Phoenix 2 thumbs up!!

Plus, it's a slick looking machine on your counter.
We got this for free -woohoo!
Last night, as always, we eat in the living room and watch tv. I was clearing off the coffee table and came back in to get the rest..... Bandit...... was ON the coffee table drinking my milk!
She has eaten 2 - 17 pound bags of Puppy Chow and the cat's food every chance she gets. I give her and Trixie dog bones every day - they fight over who gets what bone.
Bandit was sleeping in Trixie's little dog bed. Yesterday I got her a large bed of her own. This morning we went into the pool bathroom to check on them. Trixie was sleeping in Bandit's new bed. Bandit was sleeping Trixie's little bed with a blanket.
I see such a difference in Trixie since we got Bandit. I think every dog should have a playmate. Anyway... that's today's scoop on Bandit.

I've been watching for a ice maker to go on sale. The original price on this one at Target was $160. When I went into Target Black Friday there was a $99 sale sticker on this. Woohoo! I took it to the checkout. The checkout lady said no this was not on sale. Soooo I took the floor manager back to the sale sign. OOPS Someone put the microwave sale sticker on the ice maker. I got the ice maker for $99.
It promises ice in 7 minutes. I tried it out yesterday. What they don't tell you is yes you will get ice between 7 to 14 minutes BUT.... it's about 10 ice cubes!
It took about 5 hours to make two small baskets of ice cubes. Oh my!
**Special Note: I have now use this a couple days..... I found that if you only make small cubes it works a lot faster.
